COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Despite the ban on women in the Union Army, Elizabeth Newcomb fought in the Civil War. Bill, as she was known, dressed as a man and saw combat in several battles. We have named our India Pale Ale after Elizabeth because its looks are deceiving. Although light in color, it is fully hopped with a bold, bitter taste. This beer is not for the rookie ale drinkers, and certainly would have been a favorite of Elizabeth’s.

Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden-orange color with a medium thin and somewhat creamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, grapefruit and caramel malt. The finish is mildly hoppy with a short bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

deyholla (6713) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at the Foundry. Pours a clear amber gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has light grapefruit with a bit of pine and a pretty strong bread backbone. Flavor is similar with pine and bread combining and backed by a touch of grapefruit.

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Sampled in a standard old pint glass which displays a bright golden and orange hue topped by a fluffy head and very nice lace.
The aroma has a nice layer of grassy andlight piney hope, some grapefruit and clove, and healthy dose of biscuity malt.
The flavor profile is a solid bitterness supported by the pale malts, clean and simple which mades a fine drinking IPA. The finish is a tad peppery and astrengent. <sp> Overall, it is a good IPA and what is wrong with that?

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2005
This is a medium-dark amber beer witha nice citric aroma. This ale follows with the promised grapefruit hoppiness and medium body. Very good American-style IPA.
